This place is heaven.
I knew about this store, but what I didn't know that they had one in Dubai. My eyes caught it when we were leaving the mall. And I HAD to go. I told my dad, and my mum got kinda angry because she was tired and bleh. So my dad was like, 5 minutes Hessa.
When I got into the store, 5 minutes seemed like a nanosecond to me. The place was GINORMOUS. Kinokuniya is the biggest bookstore I have ever seen. And it's beyond amazing. I just can't define how amazing it is. The place was so organized and I got goosebumps while I was in there. So I was looking around all happy and thrilled when I saw one thing that made my heart stop: Manga. My eyes went immediately like this : O_O
I just couldn't think. My dad was like " Hurry up Hessa", so I just snatched 2 of my favorite mangas EVER. I didn't even care what volumes they were. Vampire Knight and Shugo Chara ( First manga I've ever read, and anime I've ever watched!). Then I snatched other reading books and the rest of the " House of Night " novel that I didn't read..yet.I couldn't take pictures inside because it wasn't allowed, which I don't understand why really. But you can check out some photos from ZDistrict.

I wish Kuwait would open Kinokuniya here. I mean, I'm 100% it'll be a hit here. It's just beyond amazing, and I'm sure many people will love it. I know about Jareer and the other bookstore in the Avenues (forgot the name), they're great and all..but....KINOKUNIYA. ITS AMAZING. I'd even sleep there if I can!
I hope Kinokuniya would really open in Kuwait soon, it doesn't even have to be soon. Even if it's after 5 years, I'll still be happy.
The first store I'm going to during my trip to Dubai mall next time, would be Kinokuniya. Of course, obviously, duh. Okay, I'll shut up now.
